    Q3 2011 SP1 RadJumpList for Windows Phone 7 now adds support for bindable Data Descriptor collections

    Some time ago a customer of ours asked us if there is a possibility to use the FilterDescriptors, SortDescriptors and GroupDescriptors collection in a MVVM context by binding them to collections defined by the view model. As all the data is managed there, why not also manage the data operations in the same class? Unfortunately, these three properties are readonly and therefore binding them to a property defined by the main view model wouldn’t work. We decided that allowing similar scenarios will simplify the development with RadJumpList and therefore as of Q3 2011 SP1 the control exposes three new properties which...

    RadDate- & RadTimePicker for Windows Phone 7 extended to support custom selector intervals

    It is a common scenario when we would like to limit the selectable values in a time or date picker control. Normally we would do this by setting an allowed date-time range but a more sophisticated case is when we also want to filter out some selection possibilities and allow only specific ones. Imagine an application that provides the end-user with the possibility to create reminders that can only happen in time intervals of 15 minutes: 3:00 AM, 3:15 AM, 3:30 AM... Here we don’t want to prevent the user from selecting values from the whole time-range, but want to make some...

    RadContextMenu for WP7 - Q3 2011

    The Q3 release is fast approaching and we are happy to announce that our control suite for Windows Phone will be updated with the addition of RadContextMenu. Our menu will provide a similar experience to the native OS context menu but will also provide a few extra goods that you won't find in other competitors. For example users will have an easy way of specifying which element should pop out when the context menu is set on a list box for example. The menu is set on the listbox itself, but the individual list box items will pop out when the...
